My BlackBerry Storm Review

Well I’ve had my Blackberry Storm for a few weeks now and I have a few tips to make it work better. I said “Better.”

1. Install the Blackberry Update that they released about a week after they started selling the Storm. This makes the phone act more like a Beta version.

2. Under the Options menu, Keyboard/screen set the font size to 10. This increases the size of the menus and other buttons. So if you have big hands/paws like me it’s easier to select the button you really want.

3. Remove the Blackberry Messenger. You need to uninstall it. This is one of the apps that Blackberry always keeps open for you so you have faster access to it. 

4. Close the apps your not using. A real pain, I know.

5. Don’t forget about rebooting the unit every now and then. I mean pull the battery for a good minute.

So even with these changes I still get it to crash and burn. (Just use the camera, video and playback.)

BlackBerry Storm Crashed again, and again.

Physical Security in MDF,IDF, and Phone rooms

Physical Security in MDF,IDF, and Phone rooms

All the companies that I’ve worked for have had the policy of “Never leave unauthorized people alone in the MDF’s, IDF’s , and the phone room’s. “ That being said, over the past year or so I’ve been talking to Phone Guy’s/Gal’s and such that have come to do work in these “sensitive areas.”

I asked them “How many companies require someone be with them? The answer is about half. That doesn’t seem very good. So then I start asking about the people that hang out with them. It seems that again only about half are computer and/or phone people. It seems odd that you would put a guard on the worker that doesn’t know anything about phones and computers.
